at the time so close to an election. we are hoping for a favorable ruling. we are also on the ground educating people on how to get their ideas as best as they can. the lines at the penndot are two, three, four hours long. disabled people are unable to get the new form of i.d. we hope that judge simpson rules favorably and strikes down this law. >> brenton, you have been all over this from the beginning. i have been following your stories, today in voter suppression. when i hear that the penndot offices are giving out all of this bad information, i'm assuming they are not part of some grand conspiracy. they are just front line workers that can't keep up with the rules. is that right? what are the real challenges to making this at all fair? >> well, consider when the common wealth court hearing started on tuesday. the latest iteration of rules had come down to the penndot workers literally that morning. there was testimony in court that at 7:45, that morning, that a memo went out to the penndot workers telling them, oh, so here are these new rules and policy changes. so there has been plenty of

of quality in a child care setting is the training and education of the workforce, if we can up the bar on that. i think there's a lot that can be done. i think that, as far as quality is concerned -- you have about 28 states with a quality rating system. that is a really good thing. it is tough to be a parent. what questions do you ask? what do you look for? i think every parent wants the warm person who is going to be friendly and nice and you can click with because you want somebody who will love your children, but at the same time, the expectation should be if you are in a business with children, there should be other criteria. you should not have a history of violent offenses, so you would be no harm to the child. you should have some minimum training so that what you are doing can nurture the children and, hopefully, put them in a situation better ready to succeed when they start school. unfortunately, as i said, what we have seen from our studies is that is not happening. i want to end with one other thing it is called parents and the high costs of child care. we are not where we
this story with the world. you wouldn't know it to look over here, but public education is our most pressing political, social and moral problem. everybody knows it, and positions are entrenched, and there's a lot of hot rhetoric on all sides. somehow we've gotten to a point where frustration has built to such a fever pitch, that we've turned on teachers as the villains and started shutting down schools all over the country. as a writer after a good story to tell, i went looking in the pressure cooker of a public high school working against the clock to raise test scores. i wanted to take a look at what we're throwing away in this big national purge. instead, i found a dynamic principle leading a -- principal, leading a group of passionate, dedicated teachers at a school with a proud tradition to rally the community around. i found a scramble to help a surprisingly savvy group of kids who have been largely abandoned by the system. um, as most of you probably know, the book traces the pivotal 2009-2010 school year at reagan high, and we've been -- weaved in a lot of its history. not all, but

in the nebraska legislature, i said there are four priorities -- public education, public safety, public infrastructure, and taking care of those who cannot care for themselves. that applies to our federal government as well. there are people that need help, and government needs to help those people. that is a given, and to make comments on both sides in trying to divide this country and divide the people of this country, that serves no purpose. people sometimes need help, and government should be there for them. >> i have been more careful looking for the video cameras when i am answering questions.

of every dollar spent on education in the state of illinois is spent for retirement and health care for teachers. 71 cents. megyn: that's incredible. >> this is a state that is corrupt, it is a state with officialdom that is utterly dysfunctional and incompetent, and you just saw one of the greatest nonsense acts, pure political theater in chicago, mayor rahm emanuel and the teachers' union coming to a deal which resulted in a 16.5% pay raise while only 15% of their students are proficient if reading, more than half are not even capable of basic reading skills. meg "the wall street journal" wrote sooner or later we knew it would come to this since the democrats can't bring themselves to oppose union demands. they give and they gave give and they give to the unions, and eventually the bill comes due. but the question is whether any federal politician would have the gall to put the taxpayers of the nation, the federal taxpayers on the hook for those deals struck in those rooms in chicago. >> well, obviously, there's one by the name of president barack obama who's doing precisely that,
